For the first time, Skift Meetings is showcasing the top suppliers in the business events industry to its global readership through a new awards program, the Skift Meetings Awards.

The power of awards in business should never be underestimated, as they can offer a unique way of boosting your company’s profile and standing out from the competition. However, more than that, the process can provide a distinct opportunity to evaluate your business practices, identify areas for improvement, and celebrate the work of your team and organization. 

So, let’s explore how entering awards can help your business thrive.

Winning a Skift Meetings Award is a stamp of approval from industry experts who truly know their stuff. You’ll also receive a brandpack including graphics and badges, so you can celebrate your achievements with a badge of honor.

  1. Boost Staff Morale 

An award can be a huge confidence booster for your team, and it gives them a platform to feel proud of the work they do that they may not otherwise have access to, motivating them to keep up the great work and creating a sense of shared purpose among your teams.

  1. Point of Connection

Award programs can also provide excellent networking opportunities, opening the door to connect with other businesses in your industry, potential customers, partners, and even investors – oftentimes leading to new business opportunities.
